Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise provides a new way to do things, a new way to make business decisions based around people, the environment and making enough money to help the organisation to continue striving towards meeting its vision.

A social enterprise is a business whose objectives are primarily social, and whose profits are reinvested back into its services or the community. With no financial commitments to shareholders or owners, social enterprises are free to use their surplus income to invest in their operations to make them as efficient and effective as possible. Well known social enterprises include Turning Point, the Eden Project, the Big Issue, and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant.
